Covid-19 update April 2021: Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public for general browsing. We’re still rehoming virtually and we’re here to help if you can no longer care for your dog. Please don’t visit, or travel to our centres unless you have already been matched with a dog, or are leaving donations at one of our contact-free drop off points.

Ballymena (Northern Ireland)

Come and say hello!

Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public for general browsing.

We kindly ask that you don’t visit, or travel to, our centres. We’re still rehoming, with a virtual matching system and safety measures in place. If you’re matched with a dog, you’ll be invited an appointment at the centre to meet them, and if all goes well, make plans to take them home.

More information about rehoming from us.

We’re experiencing unprecedented interest in adoption, so please bear with us, we’re doing everything we can to find our dogs their forever homes.

Welcome to Dogs Trust Ballymena. We are a happy, friendly team and would love you to come and visit us at the Centre to see our fantastic facilities and all the waggy tails of our doggy guests. We can care for up to 50 dogs at any one time and our facilities include a training barn, wonderful woodland walks and a big field to run around. We have dedicated rehoming staff who have lots of experience in helping match dogs to their forever families and we are always happy to answer any questions you may have about the rehoming process. We look forward to seeing you very soon.

Did you know our Supporter Relations Officer (SRO), Samuel Reid, can offer free talks to community groups and organise tours of the rehoming centre?  He also deals with all the local enquiries about donations in memory of a loved one, as well as answering any questions about our free Canine Care Card Scheme or legacies. He also organises the annual Fun Day and helps with the social media coverage for the rehoming centre too!
